In their spare time three vigilantes, childhood friends, enjoy patrolling the U.S./Mexican border. But these youths soon learn that even the most guarded borders are permeable. When the lines between fantasy and reality become dangerously blurred, these young men are forced to decide what it means to be an American, and who has the right to belong.

A Performance by Ally Theatre Company of an original play written by Doug Robinson. Welcome to Sis’s, reimagines the story of Sis’s Tavern in North Brentwood. The play takes place during the 1920-30s and explores the meaning of community, the commonplace, and how it was shaped through racial segregation.

Three highschoolers are the queens of their school until Danielle arrives. When she catches the eye of one of their exes just before the Winter formal, they decide to keep their friend close and their enemy closer, manipulating her emails, social media, and relationships. When their mean-spirited plan for revenge goes far out of control, the repercussions of their choices will follow all of them for the rest of their lives.

Ally Theatre Company produces theatre designed to engage audiences through acknowledging and confronting systemic oppression in America. We aim to join the vital conversations — sparked by generations of thinkers, writers, performers, and activists who paved the way before us — conversations that continue each and every day.

by Joel Drake Johnson

Seeking: DOCTOR WILLIAMS: mid 40s-early 60s. White male. Charming, charismatic, a favorite among his patients. Loves being the boss. Hides his irritation and discomfort with Jaclyn behind a smile. Wants Jaclyn fired because he doesn’t like her attitude but knows he has no legal ground to do so. Uses Ileen’s adoration of him to manage and manipulate her relationship with Jaclyn.

ROSE SAUNDERS: late 60s-70s. A long-time patient of Dr. Williams. Feeble. Is offered a wheelchair but declines. Sweet and grandmotherly. There is no indication of her ethnicity in the script, but based on her dialogue she is most likely not black.
